Honeywell Climate Driver Installation

Climate Icon

The Honeywell Driver is Allonis' application that provides a 2 way real time integration (polling every 30 seconds) with a Honeywell thermostat controller within your myServer user interface. It is reliant on Honeywell's Internet cloud service.  The Driver supports more than one monitored thermostat for multi-zone installations.

System Requirements

  • myServer
  • Climate Family App
  • Working Honeywell thermostat controlled Heating / Ventilation / Air Conditioning (HVAC) system
  • Honeywell WiFi connected to Honeywell cloud

Before attempting to create a new Honeywell Thermostat Device in myServer, you should ensure that your thermostat is installed, powered up, and properly configured for use with your HVAC system. Refer to the Honeywell Owners Manual and Installation Instructions booklet that came with the thermostat.

Also, you’ll want to ensure that:

  • The thermostat has been updated with the latest firmware version.  It should do this automatically, once connected to the Internet.
     
  • Create a Honeywell user account.
  • Connect the thermostat to the Honeywell cloud service and ensure the data is populating their website.
     
  • How to Install the Honeywell driver on myServer

    • Purchase the Climate Family license from Allonis
    • Shutdown myServer5
    • Run myInstaller Installation on your myServer PC
    • If you are connected to the Internet, you should see the Honeywell driver listed in the Climate category. Select and download it.
    • After the driver is downloaded, click to install it.  It will install two files into the myServer Drivers directory.
    • Restart myServer

    Configuring the Honeywell Driver

    • Don't manually add a thermostat into the Climate Family.  The driver will do this for you.
    • Double click on the Honeywell driver in the myServer Device Drivers window.
    • Click on the Devices tab.
    • You should soon see the thermostat appear in the list.
    • Adding the device and authorizing it will automatically add a new thermostat to the Climate Family.

    Variables will be created starting with "climate_X_yyyy"  with your current temp and climate settings.

The Allonis sample webpages should now show you the thermostat on the Climate page with data.

Notes:

  •  It can take four minutes for the myServer commands to be sent to Honeywell cloud, to the thermostat, acted upon by the thermostat, reported back to the Honeywell cloud, and then updated within myServer.

  • On initial discovery, the driver will setup with the name of the thermostat that Honeywell cloud has been configured with.  Once the thermostat is setup, you can change the name in the Climate Family.
